Dying wish comes true for 86 year old cancer patient


A motorcycle parade in honor of Ruth Evans rolled through the streets of Vivian on Friday. Evans is battling cancer, and the parade was a wish on her bucket list.

Evans was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer 4 years ago, but she later went into remission. During that time she raised money for pancreatic cancer research.

"It is hard, but with determination and faith in God you can make a difference," says Evan's daughter Susie Richie.

In February, the cancer returned.

"It has really made my recovery a wonderful life," Evans says the community has since chipped in to make the wishes on her bucket list come true.

Thursday members of various bike clubs came together to grant another wish, a motorcycle parade though Vivian.

The ride took Evans on the back of a motorcycle through the town of Vivian.

"I'm expecting to win it, when the God's get ready I'll be ready," says Evans.
